Falkirk -24h On

Last updated : 26 November 2006 By Firparkcorner

The players are to be congratulated for the way they attacked the game. From the kick off it was clear that the disaster of the previous week had left no hangover. It was also apparent that McDonald had fully recovered from the hamstring problem which hampered him in the game against Hibs. He was to make a huge contribution to the afternoon's success.

The late goals from the strikers, important as they were in securing the points, must provide a welcome confidence boost to a team which has struggled to make the best of its scoring chances. The fact that we fell a goal behind after dominating the game for the first half hour underlined the danger we face by our failure to make the best of our early pressure.

It also demonstrated the continuing fragility of our patchwork defence. A glimmer of light was provided by Corrigan's return but it will be several weeks before he resumes his beat on the right hand side of the back four.

There's no doubt that we got the best of the referee's decisions. On another day the official could have taken a different view of the key incidents but to our credit we grabbed the opportunities. Foran's confident execution of the spot kicks put us in position to win the game.

We can set off up the A9 next week with some expectation of taking something from the game. Inverness has been a happy hunting ground recently, let's hope there's no change next Saturday.
